I celebrated my new year holidays by going on a tour. I was not a traveler though, I was an interpreter for a tour agency in Siem Reap.The location was in Suong Village, Bakong District about 7km north of Tonle Sap lake.
The tour programs were arranged by Buffalo Trails Cambodia and EWB to offer groups of engineering students from Australia to learn more about the communities in the countrysides.
During the 4 nights and 5 days, beside staying and learning to adapt the living , the students learned so many different things. Additionally, they worked on their own projects to help find out the solutions to problems in the village.
I had a wonderful time with them and the villagers. It was such an interesting experience from interpretation and translation and the experience of living in the villages even helping out to find solutions to the problems as well.
